The Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for The Code, A, B, and C student workbooks provides pre-literacy instruction and reinforcing exercises with a focus on visual identification of consonants, their written lowercase letter forms and their sound-symbol relationships. Each lesson addresses the principles of effective reading instruction and follows the same easy-to-use format. The Teachers Guide is required for providing listening exercises.

The Teachers Guide for Workbooks A, B and C expands on the skills presented in these books, providing teachers with various options for instruction and reinforcement. The wide variety of activities may be adapted for whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one learning situations.

The 60 Picture-Letter Cards can be used for supplementary visual and auditory work and match key words in the student workbooks. Letter cards allow students to practice letter identification and recognition. Picture-letter combination cards help students map sounds to symbols. Use with Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for The Code, A, B, and C workbooks.

The Workbooks, Explode The Code Books 1-8 focus on Phonemic Awareness, Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency, Comprehension, and Writing. All workbooks have several review lessons and a posttest. Explode The Code Half Books (1 ½-6 ½) focus on more practice and reinforcement with skills in workbooks 1-6.

Code Cards (1 card for every concept introduced in Books 1-3.) include suggestions for daily practice activities and games. Each card is marked with the book and page number on the concept, which it is introduced.

Teachers Guides (Books 1-8) incorporate a quick review, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension in every lesson. Suggestions for writing practice and differentiated instruction are provided for each lesson. Specific answers to the student pages are not offered, as the book assumes student and teacher will be completing these together. However, answers for pre-test and post-test questions are included. Please also note these books only cover the "whole" levels, not the 1/2 levels.

Explode The Code Placement Tests are designed to assess students encoding and decoding skills. All tests can be given in either a group setting or individually, with the exception of Test 4, which must be administered individually. Included are directions for administering and analyzing results; answer keys and reproducible test forms.

Great intro for littles on the cusp of being ready
My firstborn was one of those kids who just figured out how to read on his own at an early age, so now that it's time to teach #2 to read I pretty much have no idea where to start. I was using a couple other products, nothing fancy, but she was really interested in doing workbooks. These early Explode the Code books seemed like just the thing for her, and I was right. She is excited to have school books like her big brother, but it's not too much work. The teaching method is spot on, back to basics, simple and uncomplicated. If you think your little one might be ready to try to start some school work, Get Ready for the Code A is a great place to start. I will be buying B and C, and am, as of now, planning to stick with this program all the way through for my daughter.

If I could make any changes or suggestions -
The book doesn't lay completely flat, and my daughter has some struggle with holding the book down while attempting to write at the same time. I am considering cutting off the binding and having it spiral bound at the print shop.
Also, we tried coloring in it with markers, and then completely bled through the page onto the page underneath. We were just using regular Crayola markers. So the paper isn't thick or heavy enough for markers, you must use crayons or colored pencils.

Good start to phonics
Book provides a good introduction to letter sounds and formation. Does not need the teacher's guide, although it does provide some helpful information.
